Mercury-winner Sampha offers a remix to Grammy-winning Oumou Sangaré’s track ‘Minata Waraba’, the first from her Mogoya Remixed album being released via Nø Førmat! Records.
Despite being praised and working with artists on both sides of the Atlantic (SBTRKT, FKA Twigs, Jessie Ware, Drake, Beyoncé, Kanye West, Solange and Frank Ocean), Sampha has been a huge fan of Sangaré’s work. He reflects as to how his Dad has a copy of the artist ‘Worota’ album and reveals that ‘…no other album has spoken to me quite like that. Her music has been a huge inspiration ever since.” Sampha is a tickle of an afro-alternative full of an eclectic bass. The remix album following the success of Sangaré’s original album ‘Mogoya’. Also adding their spin to the remixed tracks include the likes of St. Germain, Auntie Flo, and TWOTEK.
